If you are that person who spends lots of time browsing the instant noodles aisle, read this article and narrow your decision in a heartbeat. (P.S. This list is in no particular order to rank from best to worst.)
1. Maggi “Hot Cup”
A childhood classic – Maggi Hot Cup, is ultimately every Malaysians’ go-to instant noodle. Whenever we are looking for a quick meal, you can almost hear someone suggesting a Hot Cup. Cooked in two short minutes, the Maggi noodles are springy and don’t even get us started about their yummy soup. It’s heaven in a cup!
Another local favourite, some of us prefer Mamee’s Express Cup and that’s only cause it’s super yummy as well! With plenty of flavours, you’ll definitely find one suited to your taste buds. You can choose from: Vegetarian, Curry, Chicken, and Tom Yam. Also, don’t forget to try the Mamee Chef flavours because they’re good too!
3. Nongshim Shin Ramyun
As for spicy lovers, you should opt for the Nongshim Shin Ramyun instant noodles. Their soup has a spicy kick and don’t even get us started about their delicious noodles! One of many other favourites, this really is stay-at-home comfort food at its finest. It’s spicy, heart-warming, and make sure you give this a go!
4. Mama Oriental Style Instant Rice Vermicelli
Calling all MAMA fans because there’s another instant noodle flavour that you can try other than their famous tom yam flavour. If you have yet to try this, we can assure you that you’ll end up loving it. Their Oriental Style Instant Rice Vermicelli is perfect for bihun lovers and it’s super tasty!
5. Samyang HOT Chicken Flavour Ramen: 2x Spicy & Carbo
We are pretty sure that everyone of you has heard, if not – tasted Samyang’s HOT Chicken Flavour Ramen noodles. Incredibly spicy but deliciously good, there’s no doubt that these ramen noodles tastes pretty damn good. Did we mention that it’s also crazy addictive as well? Because it is! Another plus point: you must-buy the Carbo flavour (the pink packet ones!) because it’ll open up a whole new flavour group (trust us).
6. Nissin Cup Noodles
If you are ever craving Hong Kong-style noodles, you should definitely try the Nissin Cup Noodles. These cup noodles come in many different flavours and their flavours are so unique.

7. INA Pan Mee
Simply Delicious! Totally Wholesome! And, that’s so true! If you haven’t tried this instant noodle brand, more specifically the instant Pan Mee, you are missing out. Their noodles are super chewy and it tastes so good with fried onions, so, be sure to add them in for an extra kick of flavour.
8. Red Chef Soup Noodles: Spicy Sakura Prawn & Green Tom Yum
Critically acclaimed as No.2 on The Ramen Rater, the Red Chef Spicy Sakura Prawn Soup Noodles definitely packs a flavour punch. Almost like eating Har Mee at hawker stalls, this would be the equivalent. The soup is fragrant and the noodles have a perfect texture. If you’re looking for something new to try, give this one a go!
